BBTB2-Challenge-Plantin Schoolbook

Our BBTB2 Challenge this week is to use the "RicRac" from Cricut cartridge "Plantin Schoolbook" and it is hosted by Carole Beath. Carole has this thing for frogs, so I could not resist.

Okay, you have all seen it, the princess sitting on her bed reading a book, then you hear a ribbbit, then another and another, the princess then explains it was only a one time thing. It would be my favorite commercial if it weren't for the Parrot and "here kitty". I so admire the brilliance it takes to tell a story like that in seconds.

The overall size for this card is 5 1/2" X 5". I first designed the card with the ric rac boarder using Design Studio, George and Plantin Schoolbook. Then used "My Mind's Eye" double sided patterned paper over the blank. The "Princess Ava" stamped image is by "Greeting Farm" and the scalloped oval is from a Nesties. Frogs are from a QK die and were then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. All coloring was done with Copic markers and the Copic Airbrush System. Please check out the wonderful other designs by my fantastically talented design team sisters. Happy Monday, Hugs
